Helping Ivana Rapajic-Moran

Helping Ivana Rapajic-Moran

I am a 48 year old mother in Sydney Australia, Senior Medical Advisor for Infectious Diseases. My 16 year old daughter Tara was just 2 months old when my husband Paul Moran, died from a deadly extremist suicide bomber whilst filming the effects of war in northern Iraq in March 2003.

Since then I have refused to become a victim and have dedicated my time to raising my daughter and focussed my professional career on helping people.

I was diagnosed with High Grade Serous Ovarian Cancer (HGSOC) in early May 2019, treated at the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse comprehensive cancer centre and have undergone a Peritonectomy with HIPEC at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. During my incredulous journey with ovarian cancer since May this year, my main carers were my dad and my daughter. My dad’s prostate cancer has re-activated recently, and he has completed his treatment for bladder cancer also this year. It was an arduous journey for both of us and we managed to look after each other the best we could.

After 11 years as a senior advisor in infectious diseases I find myself turning to the pharmaceutical industry as a patient. My clinicians Michelle Harrison and Clare Scott are pursuing the opportunity for me to access a promising new therapy for my cancer type, a PARP inhibitor called olaparib. They think my response to chemo means this treatment could be highly beneficial.

But it comes at a high cost and despite my Doctors applying, there is no compassionate access scheme for me. Treatment will cost me $7000 per month, totalling over $160,000. Any support you may offer is so appreciated as I reach out to this new treatment that signals hope for me, my daughter and my family.
